Where time slows.....
"For years we have visited the Carribean through the eyes of the All Inclusive Resorts.
Tana Pepem, nestled in the village of El Cuyo, has changed the way we travel forever.
We spent a week of absolute relaxation, on a never ending white sand beach, in this beautiful ocean front villa. The villa was spotless and is so well designed that the absence of air conditioning was not missed. The ocean breeze flows freely through the screened patio doors and windows on the upper and lower floors, so it was never uncomfortable, even on the 32 degree days. The housekeepers Sara and Gabrielle were very attentive to our requests and the village tour that Sara took us on the day after we arrived introduced us to the grocery shopping options and restarants. We bought all our food in Cancun as we were not sure what was available there but you can purchase fresh fish and chicken in the village as well as some produce. Sara arranged a boat ride for us and we enjoyed seeing the shore and town from the ocean side. There was an excellent snorkelling reef, a tour through the fishing harbour and we stopped to visit a beach covered with many varieties of shells. Sara also assisted us in arranging to have a traditional Mexican meal prepared right in the Villa. We enjoyed learning how to prepare some wonderful Mexican dishes when Gabby and Betty arrived. If you are looking for a vacation that takes you back in time, away from the crowds, hustle and bustle of everyday life, but need to feel comfortable and safe, you will not be disappointed."

"I stayed at this house over the holidays and it was a calm and quiet place to welcome the new year.
Everything I needed was in the house, and the contacts with the owner and manager were pleasant and helpful.
The art work in the house makes it an out-of-the-ordinary rental. Just lovely."

"We have spent a total of 5 months at Panadero: one three month stay 2 years ago andanother 2 month stay this last winter.
Can't say enough positive about our experience. The house is wonderful in every respect.
It's in a great location, a short stroll to the Plaza Grande, Paseo Montejo and the Santiago barrio as well.
The owners are marvelous folks whom we never met but felt like they were true friends nevertheless.
It's very important when renting a wonderful old colonial in Mérida that you have a responsive and responsible property manager on call who can help with concerns both major and minor that do come up.
Panadero has the absolute BEST representative in Silvia. We actually become dear friends and her close relationship to Panadero's owners only makes it easy for guests to feel part of a family.
The fact that we won't be able to return to Mérida next winter opens up the opportunity for you to rent this enchanting house. Don't hesitate, I guarantee you will be thrilled."

"This pretty casita is located around 20 minutes walk from Chuburna Puerto, the nearest village. There you can buy groceries, beer, fish and some meat, but there is no big supermarket. The house has an excellent layout, with two bedrooms and a nice open living area where you can cook while chatting to others in the seating area. A large window has a great view of the Gulf of Mexico and the sea comes up to a few meters from the house.
There are plenty of plastic chairs outside, two good sun loungers and a big outside picnic table, so we spent lots of time every day on the beach. The owner, Leticia, responded immediately to our request to the Property Manager (Carlos) to repair the corroded stove by buying and installing a new one, so we were impressed by the quality of service from her.
There is a regular Combi - Collectivo - service from Chuburna Puerto into Chelem and Progreso, which are the next bigger villages to the East of Chuburna Puerto. Chelem has more restaurants and shops then Chuburna. Progreso is much bigger with two large supermarkets and is a tourist destination for large cruise boats from Galvaston and Alabama twice a week.
We really enjoyed the peaceful, quiet nature of Chuburna Puerto. It is right at the end of the development line along this part of the coast. It easy to make friends here as the 'Gringos' are very friendly -- some rent and some live here permanently, and there are no big hotels for tourist types. We stayed in February and most of the houses are unoccupied, except for Mexican holidays when parties arrive from Merida and enjoy lots of music and swimming all around, usually for a couple of days."
